Academic Warning

The continued academic progress of students toward earning a degree in their respective major is important to overall academic success. An academic warning is issued at the end of a semester in which a student fails to earn, as defined by the curriculum of the student’s major, a minimum of 67% of cumulative attempted and transferred hours. Students are expected to maintain an awareness of their academic standing and are responsible for knowing whether or not they are on academic warning.

Terms of Academic Warning:

  • In consultation with their academic advisor or academic advising unit, students on Academic Warning must develop an academic plan of action to accelerate their academic progress toward degree completion. The academic advisor or academic advising unit will retain a copy of the revised academic plan, and provide copies of the plan to the student, the academic unit’s retention coordinator and the Office of Enrollment Management for information purposes and for monitoring compliance.
  • Students on academic warning will not be able to change their class schedule once it has been set by their advisor, without prior approval of their advisor.
  • Students on academic warning may be advised to enroll in the summer term to accelerate their academic progress toward degree completion. Students who are placed on academic warning and, as defined by the curriculum of the student’s major, fail to meet the minimum hours earned towards their declared major will be placed on academic probation.
